East Plaza Boulevard On-ramp to Southbound I-805 Closed Beginning Friday

SAN DIEGO –– The East Plaza Boulevard on-ramp to southbound Interstate 805 (I-805) in National City will be closed to traffic for the weekend beginning Friday at 9 p.m. through Monday at 5 a.m., according to Caltrans. The ramp closure is necessary to accommodate improvements to the I-805/East Plaza Boulevard interchange, as part of the I-805 South Express Lanes Project.

Detours from East Plaza Boulevard to southbound I-805 are as follows: Motorists traveling west on East Plaza Boulevard will be directed to travel south on Highland Avenue, to eastbound State Route 54, to I-805. Motorists traveling east on East Plaza Boulevard will be detoured to travel south on Euclid Avenue to I-805.

Although crews will work to minimize impacts to businesses, residents and commuters, nearby residents can expect intermittent lights and noise during these construction activities. 

The improvements under construction at East Plaza Boulevard are part of the first phase of the I-805 South Express Lanes Project, a $1.1 billion effort to create a modern new transportation backbone for South County. The first phase of the I-805 South Express Lanes Project will be completed in late fall.

Project information is available at or by calling the Project Hotline at (888) 941-5005. Follow and visit to keep current on transportation information in San Diego and Imperial counties. 

Motorists are reminded to Be Work Zone Alert and to Move Over a lane when safe to do so, or slow when highway workers are present with amber lights flashing.
